    Angry Firefox on Fedora Cinnamon Spin

    I love Fedora. I love the cinnamon desktop. I love Firefox.

    They're all great software, and I use them daily. Yet one thing about combining these things drives me up the wall.

    The default dark themes on cinnamon look excellent, but if you start Firefox under a dark theme, as you would if that's what your system is set to, then the forms on many websites become colored by your theme while the text remains the same. It's unreadable, and a huge pain. You can manually specify the theme when you start Firefox, but this is a pain, and while you can modify the system's .desktop files, only the one on your desktop tends to remain persistent, while menu and toolbar links still tend to start it normally (Or at least updates will tend to cause them to return to normal).

    It's annoying to deal with, annoying to fix, and pisses me off to no end. Mozilla needs to force Firefox to override themes by default, or override how it colors forms/text under these circumstances.
    If I'm entering my address on an online shop, I like to be able to see what I'm typing!

    If that is what you want then I suggest to contact Mozilla or Mozilla (Firefox) forum and explain them the problem you see and suggest a solution. I guess Fedora uses plain Firefox so they use what they get. Not much can be done here.
